Murders are on the rise in Philadelphia-but no one seems to mind because the victims are all fugitives with histories of heinous sex crimes against women and children. Worse for Homicide Sergeant Matt Payne, the main suspect is leaving evidence for police to find. But when copycat killings start popping up due to vigilante groups dealing out their own justice, Payne must find out who's behind the chaos before the violence overtakes the city.

Missed many of the traditional characters; however, the input of some new blood was very well done. Tech base for first novels was behind the times. I bought this book at 6AM and read cover to cover without stopping. WEB Griffin does that to me.
Basically the worst effort yet by Griffin, one of my all time favorite authors! Absolutely awful! Leaves you hanging in thin air right in the middle of the story. I thought I had an incomplete copy at first. Huge disappointment.
Was This Really a Griffin Novel?
The characters (the subset in the book) are familiar names and almost come across as who they're supposed to be...almost.
If it didn't have Griffin's name on the cover, I would have given it 2 or 3 stars, but this story is such a pale imitation of what I expect in a book in this series that I want to warn readers new to Griffin's work that this book is NOT representative. The story is rushed, the characters are caricatures, and the plot is not nearly as well-developed as it should be. Just a guess, but I would suggest that Jr. hasn't gotten the feel for this series and these characters.
